The much-anticipated start of the Social Development Commission (SDC) National Community Twenty20 Competition is scheduled to bowl off this weekend with a full slate of matches in the rally phase of the championships across selected venues.
SDC’s Executive Director Dr Dwayne Vernon said as part of the COVID-19 protocols, which they have agreed with the Government, no spectators will be allowed inside the venues.
The competition will be making a return to the local cricket calendar after last year’s tournament was cancelled because of the pandemic.
Vernon underscored that the teams in the championships are looking forward to the competition and are desperate to return to the field.
“We have the permission to host our competition, and so we have done the necessary work with the department of health in the various parishes where we would have looked at the venues and ensure the venues are in a state that we can safely observe all the protocols,” said Vernon.
